President Obama: POTUS Turns 54 – Happy Birthday!

Published

on

Happy birthday, President Obama! The leader of the United States of America — and Michelle Obama’s husband — turns 54 today, August 4. Let’s help him celebrate an incredible year!

President Barack Obama has had a historic year, and as he moves into his last year of the presidency, things don’t look like they’re slowing down at all! We bet being president means you get to celebrate your 54th birthday in style — and that President Obama is going to have the best time with Michelle, Sasha, Malia — and Joe Biden!  — on August 4!

Even if you don’t agree with his politics, you have to admit that President Obama is having the best year of his presidency thus far! He’s had win after win when it comes to policy and just being an awesome guy, and that definitely makes celebrating his big day that much sweeter.

Have you ever heard of a president cool enough to be interviewed on YouTube? Obama did just that in January 2015, when he sat down with three YouTube stars to let the people of the Internet hear everything they wanted to know. He probably didn’t expect to be interviewed by a spunky girl with bright green lipstick, but that’s what happens in politics, right?

While President Obama himself did not grant the ruling to legalize same-sex marriage throughout the United States, the impact of the decision will be remembered in his presidency — especially through his vigorous support of its legalization! He made a beautiful speech, stating that America was now truly the “Land of the Free.” Tears.

It wasn’t the only time that he made us cry this past year. During the funeral for slain Rev. Clementa Pinckney, who was murdered in June 2015 during the massacre at Charleston’s Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, President Obama moved the nation with a phenomenal speech — and gorgeous rendition of “Amazing Grace.” It was vulnerable moment to behold, especially for a politician of his stature. What a beautiful thing to see.

In another step forward for his presidential legacy, Obama announced in July 2015 that he would be commuting the prison sentences of 46 non-violent drug offenders. He felt their punishments didn’t fit their crimes; it’s a move that will forever change our criminal justice system.

Manchester City Complete Historic English Treble

Published

on

Manchester City completed a rare treble after hammering Watford 6-0 in the final to clinch the Emirates FA Cup at Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening.
The Citizens became the first English side to clean sweep by claiming all the titles. Manchester United are the only other English side to have won the treble, though their wins came in the form of the UEFA Champions League crown, EPL title and the FA Cup during the 1998/99 campaign.
City were crowned English Premier League champions for the second successive season a week ago after seeing off Brighton and Hove Albion 4-1 in their final match of the season, and also won the Carabao Cup earlier this season after beating Chelsea 4-3 in a penalty shootout.
Pep Guardiola’s charges were made to work hard for their league title, finishing just one point ahead of second-placed Liverpool, on 98 points.
The FA Cup win was also a bitter-sweet moment for inspirational captain Vincent Kompany who announced shortly that he would be leaving the blue Manchester side after 11 years to return to his native Belgium where he will take up a role of player-manager at former club Anderlecht.

Juventus have two league games remaining this season, starting with Atalanta at home on Sunday, with Allegri’s final game at Sampdoria on 26 May.
